Top: Splendid | Jeans: Lee | Shoes: ShoeMint | Necklace: Francesca’s | Bag c/o FlyGirl | Lipstick (Moscow) c/o Radiant Cosmetics

My sister in law had always raved about Splendid but I didn’t really know until now.  Actually, Austin has a few tops from there and they are super soft but it didn’t really hit me until I got some of my own.  I was lucky enough to win a $150 Twitter giveaway to Splendid a few weeks ago and Oh, Sweet Joy pretty much convinced me to get this top, and I want more, like one in every color, please!  I’m all about adding more staple pieces to my wardrobe that can be mix and matched up easily.

And I have officially found a new favorite Mommy/diaper bag from FlyGirl!  I love love love the size of this bag, the high quality fabrics, the fact that oil cloth is SUPER easy to clean (already had a spill on it), the multitude of pockets to fit wipes, diapers, bottle, snacks, toys, and the fact that I can wear it crossbody which pretty means I am hands free to be able to carry Austin in one arm and his toy in the other arm.  I love the grey stripe design with a fun pop of purple and the versatility of being able to carry it on my shoulders too!

So yea, I really wouldn’t mind if more soft Splendid tops and crossbody bags made their way into my closet…. *ahem* (not sure who this is addressed to, perhaps my wallet).  I’m linking up to Watch What I’m Wearing, Yolo Monday, and Monday Mingle!

By the way, I have just done a revamp of my advertise page with an entirely new sponsorship package, rates, sizes, details as I’ve recently signed up with Passionfruit Ads!  I have many ad spots available NOW (no more waiting until the beginning of the next month)!  Come sign up if you feel your blog/shop would be a great fit for my blog!

    I love that cross body bag – the colors are great and I’m loving how your statement necklace matches! Great outfit!

    Looks great on you Sandy! Thank you for the wonderful review!

    I absolutely love that bag, and I am not really a purple or stripe person. Don’t know what it is about this, but I want one!

  9. March 4, 2013 / 10:32 am

    Hey Sandy! Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I would never guess the bag above is a diaper bag! It’s so trendy, and it looks great with your outfit!

  10. March 4, 2013 / 10:38 am

    It’s so funny, my first thought when I saw that bag was “That would make an awesome diaper bag!” I love bags that are cross body so we can be hands free, it’s such an important mom feature!

    I love this top, super cute and you look gorgeous!!!

  12. March 4, 2013 / 11:07 am

    I love love love that bag!


  14. March 4, 2013 / 11:25 am

    woah, so jealous of that win! I only have a piece or two from splendid but it’s SO cozy. That shirt is perfection… I’ve been coveting it because you can even wear a blazer to dress it up, or pair it with cut-offs in the summer. Congrats!

  15. March 4, 2013 / 11:31 am

    I love the whole outfit and bag. I love the way you accented with the necklace to pick up the color in the bag.

  16. March 4, 2013 / 11:53 am

    What a lovely outfit. Love the simplicity of it.

  17. March 4, 2013 / 11:55 am

    Not only do I love this bag…but that necklace! So cute!! But, back to the bag — it’s awesome!

    You look so pretty, I definitely agree with you on Splendid tops. The people there know a thing or two about comfort. I love the print of your diaper bag, can you believe with two babies of my own I’ve never owned a diaper bag! These days I shove one diaper in my little crossbody bag, and cross my fingers my little one doesn’t do a poop while we’re out.
